PBS #AmericanExperience takes on Woodstock on August 6, and you’re smiling the whole time. The original Woodstock film was a totem in my life as it represented not only the music and the generation but home when I was living far away. Now, they have gathered up the founders (notably missing Michael Lang’s voice) and dived back into the late sixties, a time of terrible troubles (Vietnam, assassination) but also a time of #rebellion and change. The music is there but not the focal point. This time it’s the hundreds of thousands of people who attended and the town that took them in. Every generation needs to see this film, (and the original too), a testament to a very different time. #WavyGravy forever!
